Scoutmaster Musings

Wall Drug Rabbit After every driving trip the troop takes 'out west', I swear to myself that's the LAST time we stop at Wall, South Dakota! But, when it comes round to planning the next long-distance trek Wall Drug always gets listed as a place the scouts decide to stop.

Unfortunately, it winds up usually being a convenient gas stop so I've got no excuses to skip it. But, man, what a zoo! It's the best place to find license plates, it's always the hottest town across the prairies, and all those Black Hills Gold stores are always going out of business. :-)

You've got to admit, there are some places across the country that just are America, good, bad, or just silly. From the world's largest ball of twine to the world's largest potato, from the first McDonald's to the first baseball diamond, when you're traveling through, how can you skip them?

Sure, after the second or third time seeing a run-down, paint-peeling, antlered rabbit it tends to lose its charm. But, remember it's still the first time for some of the guys and it may be one of the silly things they'll talk about a year later...

probably just about the time when the next trip gets planned.

I was in the Home BoyScout Troop Page That Led me to This Link. WHOM ever heard of a Rabbit with Antlers :):)just one of the SILLY things.. I cannot help Thinking of Sam Walton, Wally Mart, and Yes Mount Rushmore, and the Place I was Born S. Dakota. Home Of the Indian TRIBE The Dakota's. Of course The Rabbit w/ Antlers is not the Only silly in the USA.
